Synopsis: Shortly after the Berlin Wall was dismantled in 1989, photographer Simon Marsden and author Duncan McLaren embarked on a journey of discovery through the former Communist State of East Germany, aiming to capture on film this 'lost world' that had remained hidden from the eyes of the West for almost half a century. Their travels took them through each of the five states, from the environs of Berlin into Dresden and the countryside close to the Czechoslovakian and Polish borders. Simon's stunning and moving pictures reveal a magnificent past, much of which now lies in ruins - palaces, castles, abbeys, statues and follies that have all survived the ravages of the Second World War and the ensuing neglect of over forty years. Beautiful and awe-inspiring, BEYOND THE WALL is a unique and historic photographic collection which will be published to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the dismantling of the Berlin Wall.
About the Author: Simon Marsden is an internationally acclaimed photographer of the fantastic and supernatural. His poetic, gothic images can be found in many important collections, including the Getty Museum in California and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
